The Fortune Global Tech Forum, will convene world leaders in the innovation economy space 29-30 November 2018, in Guangzhou, China.
First convened in 2017, this event taps into the strength of two ongoing Fortune powerhouse conferences: the Fortune Global Forum and our Brainstorm TECH conference, which for the past seventeen summers has brought together the smartest, most innovative people in tech, media, entertainment, and finance in Aspen, Colorado.
The Fortune Global Tech Forum will explore the innovation revolution unfolding in China. Our 2018 theme is “Innovation in the Age of AI.” In addition to providing insights into fast-moving trends, we’ll introduce you to some of China’s most promising startups, through our second Annual Fortune China Innovation awards, a competition between high-potential start-up companies in a variety of fields, which will culminate in the naming of the Fortune China Innovation Company of the year.
Guangzhou is a spectacular setting for the Fortune Global Tech Forum: a place of international commerce for many centuries, it is China’s southern gateway to the world and an emerging center of tech innovation. You’ll come away with fresh insights and an expanded network of relationships across the full spectrum of companies from China’s emerging tech winners to the established Global 500 giants.
